The band’s first release since 2016, ‘Give Yourself A Try’ focuses on a guitar riff while singer Matt Healy contemplates ageing and identity. Lyrics such as
And what would you say to your younger self?
Growing a beard’s quite hard, and whiskey never starts to taste nice
And you’ll make a lot of money, and it’s funny
Cause you’ll move somewhere sunny and get addicted to drugs
And spend obscene amounts on fucking seeds and beans online
I was afraid to go outside
A 25-year-old that baby boomers like
portray the weird position those in their mid 20s find themselves where they’re caught between wanting to party all the time and yet wanting to settle down.
‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ is set for release this October, through Dirty Hit Records. It’s the first of two highly anticipated albums from the band, with the second due out in May next year.
